I'll adopt Schleuse's 20-point system for these artists. Winners in bold:

Bob Dylan: 4 vs. Roxy Music: 19
Van Morrison: 7 vs. Tom Waits: 15
Pink Floyd: 2 vs. Dave Matthews Band: 1 (ARE YOU KIDDING ME WITH THIS MATCHUP?!)
Neil Young: 5 vs. Genesis: 7
U2: 16 vs. Leonard Cohen: 7
The Velvet Underground: 18 vs. TV on the Radio: 14
Talking Heads: 18 vs. Crosby, Stills & Nash: 5
Radiohead: 15 vs. Nick Drake: 10

Bob Dylan: #34 vs. Roxy Music: #33
Van Morrison vs. Tom Waits: #41
Pink Floyd: #12 vs. Dave Matthews Band
Neil Young: #30 vs. Genesis: #52
U2: #20 vs. Leonard Cohen: #32
The Velvet Underground: #42 vs. TV on the Radio
Talking Heads: #63 vs. Crosby, Stills & Nash
Radiohead: #9 vs. Nick Drake: #22

I feel bad about voting against Nick Drake, but his output is too small compared to Radiohead's. My heart also says that I should have voted for Cohen, but if I go by each artist's catalog then U2 have more great songs.
Everyone you meet fights a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.

Hard to choose between VU & TVOTR
Tough draw for Nick Drake, Van Morrison & Leonard Cohen.
I would have picked any of them over Pink Floyd.

These were all walk-away matches for me….except the last one. I’m not really a huge fan of either one.
1) BOB DYLAN
2) VAN MORRISON
3) PINK FLOYD
4) NEIL YOUNG
5) U2
6) VELVET UNDERGROUND
7) CROSBY, STILLS AND NASH
8) RADIOHEAD

Bob Dylan (284)
Van Morrison (147)
Pink Floyd (190): tough call I dislike Pink Floyd but hate the other guy
Neil Young (216)
U2 (231)
The Velvet Underground (190)
Talking Heads (178): highly overrated, but still beats the opponent.
Radiohead (260)

I want to vote Leonard Cohen insted of Floyd-Heads!
